Some engines do have oil injection & self mix according to the engine's requirements. Others require the petrol & oil to be pre-mixed.
With the latter, add the appropriate quantity of oil to the petrol in its container, fit the cap & give it a quick shake. Then either connect the container to the engine (remote tank) or fill the tank mounted on the engine.
Fuel will keep longer in a sealed container.
